5 Awesome ‘Off-Grid’ Destinations In Thailand

This past week, Booking.com released the results off a Thai-specific survey meant to identify trends among locals that plan on travelling domestically in the next 12 months. The study found that 69% of Thai tourists are looking to disconnect from the ‘everyday’ by going ‘off-grid’, 78% are wanting to learn essential survival skills, and 70% are looking to simplify their vacation with just the essentials.

In response to these results which were obtained from 504 Thai respondents, the booking platform has recommended four specific destinations for those looking to follow suit and enjoy some time away from it all…

  1. O Little Tent de Koh Chang – Koh Chang

  2. Phuket and Phang Nga Full-day Eco Adventure – Phuket

  3. The COOLLiving Farmhouse Organic – Nakhon Ratchasima

  4. KowitFarmstay – Chiang Mai

Our Take


I love a little bit an ‘off-grid’ session and it’s interesting to see that many Thai people seem to feel this way as well. Given that this country is an absolute mecca for cool, funky home-stays deep in nature, it’s hard to go wrong no matter where you end up, but I’ll definitely be checking out the recommended spot in Koh Chang the next time I’m down that way. I’ve already gone ahead and saved it in my Google Maps and who knows, if it’s any good I’ll add it into Teenee.
